There are still groups of people who don't want things shared online with the general public, only specific people. I don't really care what they do, I have no real stake in the outcome.

Interesting we are being asked not to discuss this "backdoor" thing, which went on with more than a nod and a wink for almost a decade. My guess is the terse and "let's sweep this under the rug" response means it's more of a legal thing with the Dead than some effort to please the select group of uploaders allowed here. Again, I have no real stake in the outcome. And I'm sorry, but even when asked relatively nicely, asking or telling me not to do something is a sure way to get me to do it.

Either way, while the archive is a great resource for streaming and downloading music, I'm not going to complain about not having access to pseudo legal mp3's when the real thing is simply and easily available via a perfectly legal and GD-compliant torrent tracker. Most of them are higher up alphabetically in my bookmarks anyway.
